“Good place to stay for business/”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

I stayed here this past summer for a week long conference at the Austin Convention Center. Although its a little dated in the looks, the overall expereince was good. The Convention center was only 3 blocks or so away. Lots of little eateries and coffee shops in the area plus the Raddison has a Starbucks in the lobby, which is the only Starbucks within blocks of this area. Wifi is free in the lobby but not in the rooms. However, sign up to become a Club Carson Member (which is FREE), you'll get Wifi for free. Also, this hotel is right next to the infamous Congress Bridge where all the bats come out. You start to see people line up around 7:30pm, bats come out around 8:15pm. If you haven't seen it, it's pretty neat.

Location great for walking to downtown bars and restaurants. Also provides great vantage point for Congress Ave Bridge Bat emergence in the evening. There is a Starbucks which is a big plus for me. There is also a TGI Fridays but I only went there for breakfast. My room was clean and quiet. The parking garage is rather cramped and if you self park you have to go up at least 3 floors, then elevator back down to lobby level, then to another lobby to get back up to room, which is a bit bothersome.

3 night business trip. Staff always helpful and friendly. Room service was prompt and reasonably priced for a downtown hotel. Recommend king room on lakeside -- larger and quieter rooms, plus you get a great view of the bats flying to the "bat bridge" in the evenings.

We stayed here during a conference and were happy with our choice, primarily because the hotel is right next to the Town Lake which has a great walking/running path, and also right next to the Congress Street bridge where the bats emerge every night. The room was oddly shaped but that meant that we had an amazing view over the lake - it was a nice place to work and watch out the floor to ceiling windows. The Starbucks in the hotel was great, I used the gym one day, and went in the pool once.

Food-wise, my favorite spot was the Crepe place just 2 blocks away. Went there twice, for a lunch and breakfast crepe, and would have also enjoyed sitting there with a book and cafe au lait.

The hotel is a 5 min walk from the convention center - just about 3 blocks.

Down-sides to be prepared for: the closet is teeny, not really a closet, and the bathroom is just functional. And internet costs extra.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Staff is courteous and friendly. (But all people in Texas are!) Parking garage is a bit tight (could not imagine trying to park a huge SUV in there).

Nice view off the back side of hotel to watch the bats fly out at sunset. Get a table in the back of the TGI Friday's located in the hotel and you can watch them while you dine. Was a great unexpected surprise for us.

All the attractions including the Capital are just blocks away. Great choice of restaurants and clubs all within walking distance. I felt more than safe walking to and from 6th street area and back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel if you are there during

You expect clean and comfortable when you book into a Radisson, and this hotel lives up to the brand name. However it has more going for it in a friendly and attentive staff, and a location that can't be beat: within walking distance of Austin's various entertainment districts, interesting restaurants and the largest urban bat colony living under the Ann Richards Bridge.
